The MTR team analysed, with regards to the "Deepening decentralisation and non state actors programme":


  • Internal and external consistency and coherence of planned activities with national development plans and donor interventions;
  • How previous lessons learnt influenced programme formulation;
  • Objectives of the DDNSP and extend to which the programme addresses local needs and priorities of beneficiaries;
  • Appropriateness of the intervention logic for the expected outcomes.
  • Choice of the particular delivery modalities for successful delivery of the programme;
  • Appropriateness of the strategic approach.

According to OECD DAC Evaluation criteria, relevance is measured analysing how the objectives of the development intervention are consistent with the initial requirements, including country development needs, global priorities and partners' and EC's policies. The analysis of relevance specifically refers to the design phase of the program and how the lessons learnt from experiences have been taken into account for sustainability issues in this Programme.
